What I sent my swap partner....


This is the quilt I made for my swap partner Tonje/Nemo for the SSCS... a mini version from Anni Downs 'A Christmas Story' book


The little ornaments from Nancy Holversens book 'Sew Necessary' book. I also included a Sally Giblin bag pattern and some fabric (but forgot to take a pic)

I have been taking it pretty easy and doing some handstitching, still have plenty of leftovers in the fridge and its so nice not to have to worry too much about meals. The build up before Christmas with 3 kids is pretty tiring, and I always enjoy boxing day onwards and can now sew guilt free! Next post I hope to have some finished projects to show.

Bye for Now

Your swap partner is very lucky and I'm sure she will love it. It's funny how all of us have lots of leftover in the fridge! Have a wonderful 2011, Clara.

Oh Lisa, Tonje is soooo lucky! I've never seen the Anni Down's book. Now I'll have to look for it. You have made it so gorgeous; she's going to be thrilled!

Happy quilting,
